Chiropractic Care for Kids in Zionsville

Chiropractor Zionsville IN Danielle Hennes Pediatric Care

A child's nervous system is the controller and regulator of all the other systems in their growing body. From blood flow, to brain function and bone growth, the nervous system plays a central role in keeping things working and healthy. Stress and misalignment of the spine can have serious impacts on your child's overall health, behavior, and development. Foundations Chiropractic is a chiropractic clinic in Zionsville that offers gentle and non-invasive therapy that works to correct underlying issues before they become hard-wired in during development, providing support for a pain-free and successful childhood.

Pediatric Care in Zionsville

Growing a healthy spine is hard work!

We think it’s a lot easier to help kids develop a healthy spine to support them as they grow compared to fixing issues as they grow that could have been avoided. Chiropractic care for babies and kids is gentle, safe, and effective. Because babies' spines are so delicate, it only takes about the amount of pressure that you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato to adjust them. Babies can be adjusted as early as the day they’re born! In fact, we recommend that babies are checked soon after birth as any difficulties with the birthing process (vacuum extractions, forceps, cesarean sections, etc.) can create stress on the baby’s spine and nervous system.

As kids develop, grow, and experience the normal tumbles, bumps, and falls it’s important to have their spines checked to help them grow healthy and strong. Keeping their nervous system functioning well can help kids who are struggling with things such as

  • Ear Infections
  • Asthma
  • ADHD
  • Colic
  • Developmental Delays
  • Constipation
  • Torticollis
  • Other Problems

Dr. Danielle has spent hundreds of hours completing post-graduate training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) to learn how to best serve kids from their first day of life through adolescence and into adulthood. (Click here to learn more about Dr. Danielle.)

How Can I Tell If My Child Needs Chiropractic Care?

A child's spine can become quite misaligned without any awareness on their part of pain or discomfort. Children have not always developed enough awareness of their bodies to identify a subtle chronic issue developing. Even when a child is experiencing pain, they may not be able to communicate it to you and it can come across as grumpiness, acting out, or incessant crying. Issues with the spine can also be the source of many other childhood issues.

What is Chiropractic Care for Kids?

A chiropractic treatment for a child begins with an extensive examination to determine the exact issue and the best route for treatment. Even if your child is too young to communicate, or too shy, a chiropractor has the skills to work with them to find out exactly what is going on before proceeding with treatment, if it is determined treatment is needed. Gentle and non-invasive adjustments are then made to the spine. Children will often become relaxed and even fall asleep following treatment, a good sign that it has been effective.
